Machal ke jab bhi aankho se
Chhalak jaate hai do aansu
Suna hai aabashaaro ko
Badi taqalif hoti hai

Khudara ab to bujh jaane do
Is jalati hui lau ko
Charaago se mazaaro ko
Badi taqleef hoti hai

Kahun kya wo badi maasumiyat se
Puchh baithe hai
Kya sach much dil ke maaro ko
Badi taqalif hoti hai

Tumhaara kya tumhe to
Raah de dete hai kaante bhi
Magar ham khaakazaaro ko
Badi taqalif hoti hai

~ Gulzar
